Second-hand drinking is a term used to describe the effects of a persons alcohol misuse on families, co-workers, fellow students and society at large.

“二手酒”指某人过度饮酒之后对家人、同事、同学以及整个社会带来的一系列影响。

For example, friends and family members are the ones who have to try to keep that person safe, look after them if they pass out, clean up after them if they puke in their car, get over their feelings of being hurt by the mean things theyd said the night before while drunk and live with the constant fighting about the drinking behavior.

比如,朋友和家人得想辦法保证饮酒人的安全;当他们喝醉睡过去以后得在他们身边看护他们;如果不幸他们在车上吐了,还得帮忙清理;要是喝醉的人头天晚上说了什么伤人的话,也得自己慢慢“消化”;同时要不断跟对方的饮酒行为做斗争。

Something most of us do not fully understand is the physical and emotional consequence to the health of a family member or friend caused by repeatedly dealing with second-hand drinking. It is one thing if this is an occasional happenstance (although even a drunk driver could die because of a traffic accident, for example). However, if your family members or friends drink like a fish and get drunk all the time, there could be serious emotional and physical health consequences of them.

我们很多人对于反复应对“二手酒”对其家人和朋友产生的身心影响并不是很了解。偶尔饮酒过度可能影响不至于很恶劣(当然,酒后驾车的影响可能会是致命的)。但是,如果你的家人或朋友恰巧是嗜酒如命的人,那么由此产生的身心健康问题就可能会很严重。
